Hockey

On Friday 8th February both the Y5/6 girls and boys hockey teams competed in the South Yorkshire Finals in Doncaster. It was a very cold afternoon and both teams played well, but sadly were knocked out in the semi finals.

Gymnastics.

On Thursday 7th February the Y3/4 and Y5/6 Gymnastics Squad competed in the Rotherham Gymnastics Final. The Y3/4 team came 6th and the Y5/6 team came 3rd. We were very impressed when one of our Y3/4 girls had the highest score out of nine teams and one of our Y5/6 girls had the highest score out of the teams she was competing against.

Weston Park Museum

On Tuesday/Wednesday 5th/6th February, all the children in Y5 and Y6 visited Weston Park Museum in Sheffield to take part in a workshop to find out more about the Ancient Egyptians.  During the day in the museum they were fascinated by the real ‘mummies’ and their original coffins with hieroglyphics covering their surfaces.  Whilst pretending to ‘mummify’ a body, they learnt all about the gruesome things that were performed on the dead to ensure the bodies were able to go to the ‘afterlife’.  

SNOW WHITE

On Friday the 8th February, all the children were entertained by a traditional pantomime in our school hall.  Audience participation was crucial to the hilarity with everyone joining in the traditional panto chants and singing along with the familiar songs.  A well earned morning of hilarity!

Does it matter what drinks we have?  Do drinks affect our teeth?

Does it matter what drinks we have?  Do drinks affect our teeth?  These are just two of the questions that the year 3/4 children have been looking at.  The children planned a science investigation to see if they could  find out using some common drinks.  Unfortunately, none of the children were willing to give up their gleaming front teeth for the investigation so we had to settle for some eggshells instead.

See below for the end results after leaving each eggshell in a jar of liquid.  The children predicted and gathered results in four areas: smell, hardness, colour change and size (did the eggshell start to disintegrate?).

Maybe you could try this with other drinks at home.  You could compare coke with other variations such as diet coke.  If you do, make sure you let your teacher and class know the results.
